Erasure from the register of persons convicted of crime.

28.—(1) Whenever a person registered in the register is convicted in Saorstát Eireann of treason or of a felony or a misdemeanour or is convicted outside Saorstát Eireann of a crime or offence which would be a felony or a misdemeanour if committed in Saorstát Eireann, the Council may erase the name of such person from the register.

(2) A person whose name has been erased from the register under this section may be restored to the register at any time by special direction of the Council but not otherwise and the Council may attach to such restoration such conditions (including the payment of a fee not exceeding the fee which would be payable by such person if he was then being registered for the first time) as the Council thinks fit.
